    Kanthal is much better than nichrome, but depending on the type of Kanthal, its resistance can still change by up to 3% from cold to 300C. See this datasheet:

    Assuming you use the same type of…

    I don't see how this simplifies calibration. I assume that you would be running all 8 reactors with heaters in parallel to give each heater coil about 17A at 42V max (around 700W).


    But the power is the same only if the coil…

    The unusual part is not the s/n ratio change. It is that the green and blue dots, from two different independent experiments show exactly the same random noise, but with an offset. If you think of the up/down variation from sample to sample as…

    It looks like there is some controversy about the paper on room temperature superconductors. See:

    https://arxiv.org/pdf/1808.02929.pdf

    It seems that two of the graphs, with data taken at different times, have identical noise patterns. He stops short…

    Exactly (although this is about MIlls, not Miles). When reading something sent out anonymously like this, it is fair to use anything in the article to try to figure out if the author is impartial or not. When the article says that…

    I like the part of the anonymous briefing summary that makes it clear that the author is completely unbiased:

    "Furthermore, Dr. Mills is arguably the greatest scientist and innovator in history."

    This assumes that only the heat capacity of the fuel is important. What if the active reaction causes a change in the heat capacity of the rest of reactor (heating coil, etc)? That might be caused by a phase change (melting) of…

    Sigh, as for who has 'taken over this thread' as far as I know not the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, or General Woundwort has taken over this thread. The anon posers who plague this and all social media forums may think otherwise, they are welcome to do…

    Do you have a way to do cloud chamber experiments"

    If not, here is a simple DIY cloud chamber using alcohol and dry ice:

    With an applied magnetic field, you could determine if the radiation has…

    Carbon 11 has a half life of 20.3 minutes and decays primarily with positron emission to stable Boron 11.

    Regarding Mitchell Swartz and the USPTO, I see two possibilities:

    A. The patent office was right. His patent applications do not enable one of ordinary skill to make and use the invention. That does not necessarily mean that he does not have a…

    A few thoughts, in no particular order:

    First, in US criminal law, the saying is that one is presumed innocent until proven guilty. This emphatically only applies to criminal cases, where the prosecuting authority has the…

    The big question with the IH application is whether any of them will get past the examiners and be issued as patents. A patent must provide sufficient information that one of ordinary skill can make and use the invention. Is there anyone now of…

    (Quote from Shane D.)

    Provisionals are not "maintained." Their value is in establishing the priority date of later utility applications that reference the provisional. Provisionals expire after a year and are of no value unless converted to a…
